I like both but if I had to go for one, I would go with Furthur. The reason being is that I thought the 09 Dead tour with Warren was a little slow and I wished that they had let Warren sing more of Jerry's tunes. The thing I like about Furthur is that John is (to me) not being Jerry but putting his own mix on the song through his guitar work. If the Dead tour of 09 funked it up a little more and picked the pace up (maybe it was me but the shows did seem slow) and allowed warren a liitle more room on Jerry tunes, I would probably be saying The Dead. How can you go wrong with alll of them plus Warren under the conditions I put out. I saw Furthur in Boston last month and thought the show was great. Great energy and playing Russon and Chimenti were phenom. I agree that Phil is playing his face off. I guess Furthur by a small margin!
